About the area/map

Witton Park

Witton Park, to the west of Blackburn centre, is a large well maintained area dedicated to recreation and sports.
There are playing fields, an athletics track, cafe and playgrounds in the level areas by the river.  On the flanking hills there is a complex mix of woodland and open giving good technical orienteering.  From the top of Billinge Hill there are a series of downhill MTB tracks.
